THE GRIM REAPER. Local Obituary Record



Last Saturday a group of old settlers of Kilbourn went to the depot to meet an old-time neighbor who was being brought home to find a last abiding place beside her husband, who died in 1883, twenty-three years ago. Mrs. Melissa Stillwell died at the home of her son Victor in Alexandria, S. Dak., Jan. 10, after an illness of only four days, of pneumonia. Though her health began to fail several years ago, she retained her faculties until the last, and until her last illness was remarkably active fr one whose age had passed eighty years.

Mrs. Stillwell was born in Springville., N. Y., March 10, 1826, and in November 1853 was married to David Stillwell at Honey Creek, Wis., coming to Kilbourn in 1856. Her husband built several of the early houses of the village, those at present owned and occupied by Jerome Nichols and George Hoisington and one just north of the latter. In 1856 their son, Victor Kilbourn Stillwell, now a banker in Alexandria was born, being the first male child born in Kilbourn---the first birth was a sister of E. D. Munger, who died in infancy. Another son, Wendell, learned telegraphy here, went west and became superintendent of the Rock Island railroad lines west of the Missouri, being later compelled to resign owing to ill health. He is now in the insurance business, located at Des Moines, Iowa. A niece, Anna Stillwell, lived with the family here. She is married and lives at Maud, Okla. The sons attended their mother to her last resting place in the Kilbourn cemetery. For some years Mrs. Stillwell occupied the place now owned by E. Fehl, at the railroad crossing n the Pine Glen Resort road. She left here in 1890, since then residing with her sons.
